NEW YORK - The paint experts at Sherwin-Williams have chosen a deep sea-blue hue called Oceanside as their 2018 colour of the year.

The company described the pick Tuesday as evoking a wanderlust in an "opulent and mysterious" shade that serves as counterpart to a range of hues, from neon pink to desert taupe.

Sue Wadden, the company's director of colour marketing, says people today have a growing sense of adventure "and it is making its way into even the coziest corners of our homes."

She said there's a craving for "things that remind us of bright folklore, like mermaids and expeditions across continents."

The colour has been embraced in the design styles of mid-century modern, Mediterranean and ultra-contemporary.

Alabaster was Sherwin-Williams' 2017 colour of the year.
